Open Source in the Pharma and Biotech Industries

Submitted by ahf on Thu, 02/21/2013 - 01:09

The free/open source approach has grown from a minor activity to become a
significant producer of robust, task-orientated software for a wide variety
situations and applications. To life science informatics groups, these systems
present an appealing proposition – high quality software at a very attractive
price. And as a way to ensure interoperability in a more and more diverse
environment.  In this talk, Claus Stie Kallesøe from H. Lundbeck and the
Pistoia Alliance will focus on three main points:

The use of open source software in Lundbecks research – i.e. Linux, Apache,
RubyonRails, Extjs, git as the base for the Lundbeck Research System

The Pistoia Alliance strategy for open source software and collaborative
research platforms

The IMI openphacts project as a way to pool pharmacological data and the IMI
eTriks project as a tool for translational medicinal data.
